Great way to use up that extra squash...and in a dessert! If you don't tell them it's there, they'll never know. You can use zucchini or yellow squash for this pie. If using zucchini and truly want to disguise it, peel off the green before shredding it.

Here's what I did and would do next time. It has potential in terms of being really good and also healthy. I chopped/minced the squash instead of grating no butter used about a cup of coconut milk instead of coconut extract. The thing I thought was a little odd about it was the texture of the squash. I think next time I would puree the whole thing and say it was a coconut cream pie and serve with whipped cream. Good way to use up yellow squash. Will try again next time I need to use some up.
